SCULPTING TINY TINY TINY DETAIL!
The Angry Clobber Monkey is almost done! Now I’m on to the final details.
The feet are roughed out now, after a little more smoothing and contouring it’s time for the tiny detail
This where the freeze spray comes in handy. Use some freeze spray to firm up the clay. The small edges can become very sharp with use of tiny tools on frozen clay. I find all sorts of little tools to make impressions. The little ankle bolts were done with a tube and hex-key wrench. Carefully smooth out the edges with alcohol.
The screws on his body are done with a tiny pencil lead and an eyeglass screwdriver.
The rings around his wrists were easier to make with rubber O-rings from the plumbing department from the hardware store. Add-ons can be time savers!
